If you’re planning a wedding or have a baby on the way, you’ve probably thought about creating a wedding registry or baby registry at your typical brick-and-mortar stores – Target, Babies “R” Us, JCPenney, etc. But I’m guessing you might not have thought about creating an Amazon wedding registryÃ‚ or an Amazon baby registry.
I took some time to look up the benefits of creating an Amazon registry and found that it really can’t hurt to get one started, if for no other reason than that you get a 10-20% discount on eligible items in case you didn’t get everything you asked for. Intrigued? Let us walk you through the different registries and help you get started.
How to Create an Amazon Gift Registry
Amazon Wedding Registry
Benefits of an Amazon Wedding Registry include:
10-20% Discount on Eligible Items
Within a month after your event date, you’ll get a unique claim code that will give you 10% offÃ‚ anything Amazon sells for up to 90 days after your wedding. This is a one-time-use only code, so be sure you’ve added everything you need to your cart before you check out. This discount is valid for a savings of up to $100.
*NEW* Prime members now get a 20% discount with savings of up to $500!
To be eligible, your registry must have been created at least 30 days before your weddingÃ‚ and had at least one item purchased from it.
Personalized Registry Page and Thank-Yous
After you create your registry, you can customize it with a picture of the two of you, add comments, set priorities for items, and share your personalized registry link via email or social media. They also keep track of buyer details to make writing thank-you notes easier.
Bonus Gifts from Select Vendors
Register with select vendors to be eligible for special bonus gifts. For example, register for $300 worth of Rachael Ray products and you’ll receive an Oven Lovin’ Crispy Sheet and a Stove-Oven-to-Table Casserole. If you’re brand-loyal (or your guests are), this may be a nice perk.
Want something from a different website? No problem – you can add items to your registry from other websites by using theÃ‚ Universal Registry button.Ã‚ Super simple.
*NEW* Wedding Registry Sweepstakes
Now through 5/31/17, all Amazon Wedding Registry participants who $1,000 worth of items toÃ‚ their registry are automatically entered into the Wedding Registry Sweepstakes. A winner will be chosen to win a $5,000 check (good luck!).
It is really easy to get started with your Amazon Wedding Registry:
- First, visit the Wedding RegistryÃ‚ page and click the “Create your Wedding Registry” button.
- Sign in to your Amazon account.
- Fill out the information about you and your partner, your mailing address, wedding date, etc.
- Browse the suggested items, or simply search Amazon yourself and click the “Add to Wedding Registry” button on each individual product page.
- If you want to add items from other websites, install the Universal Registry buttonÃ‚ and follow the process for whichever browser you use.
Amazon Baby Registry
Benefits of an Amazon Baby Registry include:
10-15% Discount on Registry Items
Sixty days before your child’s arrival date and up to 180 days after, you’ll be able to add items from your registry to your cart at a discount of 10% (or 15% if you’re an Amazon Prime member at the time you’re redeeming the discount).Ã‚ This discount is valid for a one-time-onlyÃ‚ savings of up to $500 ($750 for Prime members).
Please note that this discount will not be available until 14 days after you create your initial registry.
Free 90-Day Returns
If something doesn’t work out for you and your baby, don’t sweat it – you have 90 days to return your items (from date of delivery) for a full refund – for free! This benefit is for allÃ‚ Baby Store items, not just those purchased from a registry.
Like the Wedding Registry, Amazon keeps track of what’s been purchased from your registry with theÃ‚ Thank You ListÃ‚ feature. This allows you to see which family member or friend has purchased which gift for you, making writing those thank-you notes a lot easier.
Want something from a different website? No problem – you can add items to your registry from other websites by using theÃ‚ Universal Registry button. Easy-peasy.
Baby Registry Sweepstakes
Now through 6/30/17, all Amazon Baby Registry participants who add a minimum of $75 worth of Summer Infant items toÃ‚ their registry are automatically entered into the Baby Registry Sweepstakes. A new winner is chosen each month to win a $2,250 Amazon.com gift card (good luck!).
Free Welcome Box (Prime Members)
Prime members who create a registry will receive a free Baby Registry Welcome Box full of mom and baby product samples. After creating your registry, you’ll see a tab for the Welcome Box in the middle of your dashboard. Follow those steps to receive your box.
Again, the process of creating an Amazon Baby Registry is very easy:
- First, visit theÃ‚ Baby RegistryÃ‚ page and click the “Get Started” button.
- Sign in to your Amazon account.
- Fill out the information about you and your co-registrant (optional), your mailing address, expected arrival date, etc.
- Browse the suggested items, or simply search Amazon yourself and click the “Add to Baby Registry” button on each individual product page.
- If you want to add items from other websites, install theÃ‚ Universal Registry buttonÃ‚ and follow the process for whichever browser you use.
Best wishes to you on your upcoming wedding or birth of your baby!
